The World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC), the governing body of baseball and softball, has signed a new partnership with Combat who will become an Official Bat Supplier of the 2014 U-15 Baseball World Cup. 

The most elite selection of 15-year-old baseball players in the world will be representing their countries in the II U-15 Baseball World Cup — the highest level of competition in baseball for this age group — from Thursday, 31 July to 10 August across Sinaloa, Mexico. 

As part of the agreement, Combat will supply its high-quality, high-performance bats to the National Teams for use in the eighty-three games of the world championship showpiece, and the Combat brand will have a presence around the competition venues in Culiacan, Los Mochis and Mazatlán. 

“We are proud to partner with such an industry leader in innovation and performance, like Combat, to put its elite products in the hands of the world’s most elite and most exciting young baseball players, who will be united on their National Teams for the U-15 Baseball World Cup,” said WBSC International Baseball Marketing Manager, Masaru Yokoo. “And the Combat brand will also ensure that we not only meet the needs of the world’s top young players, but also the Baseball World Cup’s strict competition safety-standards.” 

Combat International Sales & Marketing Director, Dave McNally, commented: “We are extremely delighted to partner with the WBSC and to have our product connect with baseball’s future stars on baseball’s biggest stage in this youth age group.  We are confident the upcoming U-15 Baseball World Cup will be a premier platform from which Combat can further its position and brand awareness globally.” 

The global spread of the 2014 U-15 Baseball World Cup, in terms of participating countries, will expand across Africa, the Americas (i.e., the Caribbean, North-, Central- and South America), Asia, Europe and Oceania.
